Australian multinational consortium to set up plant in Champoor

[TamilNet, Friday, 25 February 2011, 02:04 GMT]
Mitchell Consortium of Australia with partners from Brazil and Sri Lanka plans to set up heavy industries in the SL occupied country of Eezham Tamils. Colonial Colombo’s cabinet approved the consortium to invest 700 million US dollars on coal and iron ore plants and sugar refinery in the 97 Sq.km of Tamil land at Champoor at the mouth of Koddiyaar Bay in Trincomalee. The territory is also earmarked for an Indo-Lanka joint venture coal power plant, reported Lankabusinessonline Thursday. Meanwhile, uprooted Tamil villagers of Champoor continue to face intimidation in regaining their village and lands.

The right of Sri Lanka to sell the lands of Eezham after uprooting and keeping people in camps, and the improper transaction by multinational consortiums and some governments using the name of sovereignty of a criminal state, when people denied recognition of their nation face genocide and live in open prisons, have to be challenged internationally, said a social worker from Trincomalee.

Transactions of this nature aiming at oppressive solutions to the national question of Eezham Tamils would eventually direct the conflict against improper investors, the social worker further said.
